Mindy Weiss in O @ Home

For those of you who have ever picked up In Style Weddings or watched any celebrity wedding special, you have heard the name Mindy Weiss. She is the super-talented party planner to the stars.

I was at the airport recently and thought I'd buy a few magazines I don't normally read. I was ecstatic to find Weiss' home in the new issue of Oprah at Home. There are so man elements of her home that inspired me, especially in her dining room! A lot of the furniture in her home can be found at Grace Home Furnishings in Brentwood, one of my favorite stores in Los Angeles.


Her dining room is to die for! It is the perfect mix of traditional and Hollywood Regency. I love her Elkins chairs (covered in KWID's Emerald Cut in mink/ivory). And every home should have a touch of blue and white Chinese porcelain.......in my book anyway!
Weiss spends her free time scouring flea markets and e-bay and she has amazing collections. My favorite is her collection of "lady portraits" from the '50s and '60s. I love how the room isn't overtly feminine, despite the pink chairs and portraits.

One room that should be feminine - the closet! There have been some pretty amazing closets featured in magazines, but Weiss' is my new crush. The tufted ceilings are so luxurious. She also used vintage brooches as drawer-pulls. What a great idea! You could also go to Anthropologie and pick out a mix of vintage-inspired pulls. Hmmm new project perhaps!
